Classification: Mystical, Oneirogen, MAOI, Sedative, Psychoactive
Syrian Rue Seeds are mildly psychoactive in their own right, and have been considered sacred throughout the Middle East and parts of Asia for centuries. They have been used in various entheogenic related plant preparations for ages among shamanic type cultures. It can be interchangable with the Ayahuasca vine because they both contain the same active alkaloids. The way that it interacts with the "spirit molecule" in your third eye is what makes it an oneirogen. Sense it can "activate" the spirit molecule, in a sense, I think it's safe to say that is what ranks it as Mystical.

The active constituents of this plant act as an MAOI. MAOIs slowly breakdown neurotransmitters, and help replenish the supply of these chemicals. They essentially interact and intensify the effects of other psychoactive plants or substances. This is why it's carefully and commonly used in combination with other psychoactives.
This fluorescent alkaloid belongs to the beta-carboline genre of compounds. The compound is found in a variety of organisms, seven species of butterfly in the Nymphalidae family, Tobacco, Passion Flower and others. It's what gives Syrian rue its MAOI properties. This would also explain why Tobacco is exceptionally valuable to Shamans, and is used in Ayahuasca ceremonies. The Ayahuasca vine itself does what it does because of these same Harmala alkaloids. In a sense, the two are "interchangable".
If you saw the plant in person, even without knowing what it was, you would likely get the intuitive sense that there is something mystical about it. On it's own, the effects can be described as calming and tranquil. When one meditates under the effects of the Rue alone, the true nature of its abilities can begin to unfold before the minds eye. You can notice the interactions between the plant and the complex chemistry of the pineal gland begin to emerge.
Much caution should be taken with Syrian Rue. Under certain conditions, consumption of these seeds could be fatal because of MAOI interactions. Much research should be conducted if one plans to consume them in any fashion. They can interact with certain foods. This is most likely one of the reasons why the Shamans fast before ceremonies.
